Sail Santorini aboard a lovely Catamaran boat, and meet places of unmatched beauty! A dreamy day at the sea awaits you!

It’s time for your sailing adventure at the Aegean Sea! Choose your cruising experience either in the morning (5-hour Day tour), or in the afternoon (5-hour Sunset tour), and spend the most enjoyable hours on board! The morning cruise starts from the small traditional port of Ammoudi, while the afternoon one starts from the port of Vlychada. Either one you choose, a roundtrip transfer from your hotel is included. So, leave all the worries behind, and let us show you the treasures of Santorini island!

A stop at the famous Volcano of the island will be one of the highlights of the experience! It is your chance to see this landmark from a close distance and try a dive at the waters of the Hot Springs, which are very close to it. The warm water full of sulfur will make you feel like you are taking a relaxing spa treatment with your friends! It will be an enjoyable experience!

Let us also get you acquainted with the wild volcanic environment of Santorini, as we are sailing along the Caldera rim. Meet the huge Indian Rock formations on the south side of the island, and the historical Venetian lighthouse on the top of the caldera cliffs, and shoot the best photos and videos of your vacations on the island!

And what’s better than a refreshing dive on the beautiful beaches? A stop at the famous White Beach and Mesa Pigadia Beach not only will offer you the chance to rejuvenate, and admire the breathtaking view of the landscape, but you will also get to enjoy a delicious BBQ meal prepared on the spot, accompanied by the known Santorini white wine. Juice and other refreshments are also provided during the cruise.

You couldn’t miss a stop at the unique Red Beach, a 30-minute stop for another swim or snorkeling, with the equipment that you will be provided on board. It’s time to explore the underwater beauty of the island, or just lay on the lounges and relax surrounded by the wild volcanic scenery.

If you choose your cruising experience in the afternoon, the perfect ending awaits, the marvelous sunset of Santorini! Stop below Oia village, and be spellbound by the view of the sun diving into the sea, and the reddish colorations that the sky takes! It will be one of the best memories of your cruise!

Book your Catamaran Cruise and get ready for a fun day at the sea with your friends!

Our favorite day

Can't say enough about our crew, Kostas and Phillip, and all they did to make our day cruising around the Caldera so special. We were greatly impressed with the efficiency of the booking through Santorini View, to the pick-up close to our hotel and especially the excursion itself. Kostas and Phillip were super informative and fun. The meal they prepared featuring Kostas' grandmother's pasta sauce recipe was out of this world....maybe the best meal we had during out 11 days in Greece. The places they anchored to swim were wonderful. These cruise is well worth the money and the best way to experience Santorini.
